It is 18th century Scotland, twenty years after the Battle of Culloden. Schoolteacher and poet Dugald Buchanan lives in a rapidly changing nation, with new developments shaping areas as diverse as medicine, agriculture, the Church and, of course, the Gaelic language.
Dugald’s major contribution to the first translation of the New Testament into Gaelic – as well as his own popular poems 'Spiritual Songs' – would have lasting influence in the Gaelic community for years to come. In Dà Shamhradh ann an Raineach (‘Two Summers in Rannoch’), however, Dugald’s wife Margaret relates the last two years of Dugald’s life, and tells an intimate story of the tragic events which shaped their family alongside her husband’s successes.
